I'm going to post this here too, just so the information is accessible. Model call will open up in Feb.

>> No.10075709

VIP is sold out, but it looks like there's also a waitlist for it?

Anyway. I'm going as a vendor with GA on the second day. There are so many coord ideas I have! And I want to stick to the theme.

>> No.10075710

I'm thinking I'll go big for the big events and tone it down for other times. I don't usually wear OTT (I like gothic and oldschool classic) and the idea of a giant coordinate on for eight+ hours is not a fun one. I'm definitely focusing on losing as much weight as possible so that I look my best in my brand.

>> No.10075732 [DELETED] 

I was so fortunate yo get a VIP ticket. I've been planning my coords for months already lol. Not really going to stick with the theme personally. All my best ideas have been with pieces that don't really match it.

I've never been to such a big, long Lolita event like this before. Is it normal to wear the same coord all day or change in between the events? I won't be getting a hotel room (I have family in a town nearby that I will be staying with) but I don't wanna be wearing the same coord all day if no one else is.

>> No.10075919

It's not really big enough to warrent multiple outfits in one day I believe. But if you want to, go for it. Last year there was an after party on day 2, some people changed into more casual clothes for that.

>> No.10075940

I’m going, I’m glad VIP sold out quickly. Might get some new shoes or make something fancy for my head.
I’ve got several things I can wear. Easy choices with one guest being AP.

>> No.10075953

I somehow got a VIP ticket?

Debating if I wanna wear my Aqua Princess fullset or do a more traditional OTT gothic coord with AP's Princess Victoria and a 3F bonnet for day two. I don't know, the possibilities are endless!

Definitely saving up for this and bringing an empty suitcase to bring back a haul with though. :')

>> No.10075955

def thinking of bringing third or even fourth outfits for changing into to be more 'comfortable' just to be on the safe side here

>> No.10076260

Both day tickets are running low! Less than 10 left apparently.

>> No.10076332

So I just bought admission for both days but this is my first big lolita event I've ever been to...

How do I get my ticket? They didnt ask for an email or anything. Is my name just on a list now?

>> No.10076398

I got a VIP ticket but man that shit was stressful. Never seen a site crash that much in my life. They really need to load test their site.

I've been coord planning for about a month now and trying to go on theme. I think of decadence I instantly think OTT classic.

I'm really hoping I can model for AP but I won't hold my breath.

Where's everyone coming from?

>> No.10076454

The website said there aren't physical tickets. Read the ticket terms at the bottom of the ticket page friendo

>> No.10076458

Then you're fine. They'll just check people in at the event.

agreed. honestly i was pretty concerned when i noticed that the site itself isn't secure. I'm glad they connected with paypal, but I'm usually anxious if I see a site involving transactions that don't use https

>> No.10076513

I don't plan on wearing AP even though they're a guest. How bad of a Lolita does this make me?

>> No.10076515

I'm an idiot.
Thanks for spoon feeding me anons!

>> No.10076538

Why go?
There is still time to buy an AP piece for the event, provided you fit in AP.

>> No.10076575

I have and fit AP, I just kinda wanna wear something else.

>> No.10076657

Who is wearing Triple Fortune?
How many Cats Tea Party will we see?
Rarest AP print we are likely to see?
Gothics wearing Gothic anyway or trying something AP?
Replica spotting. Yes there were some last year. Yes we noticed.

>> No.10076712

Damn I feel like modeling for AP is going to be super competitive

>> No.10076719

I only bought day one, since tea parties aren't really my thing, but my birthday is that weekend so I'm ready to spend way too much money. I'm probably going to keep things pretty simple, I recently bought a low key dream dress that I'll probably try to coordinate in some less-generic way than usual. The pressure to go big is too much for me, I'd rather not overshoot and miss my mark, which is a big fear of mine at such a large event.

>> No.10076926

I'm going and i'd really like to apply to be a model but... what do they look for in a model? do you have to be tall?

>> No.10076931

No. They want between 5'3" and 5'6", waist of 22-28 inches, cute round face.

>tfw this is you

>> No.10076939

I feel that way too, even though I do own AP, just nothing spectacular and I don't really do ott coords.

I'm sure it's fine so long as you do your best and not wearing a replica. It's not really a brand hosted event iirc. As far as we know, it's only AP San Fran doing a pop up shop and part of the fashion show.

damn. I was hoping that my friend would be able to model since she loves that brand so much and it suits her in spite of being model height.

Will this chick please fucking stop with this, you missed out on VIP deal with it

>> No.10077017


I don't think I'm wearing AP either, like bitch I didn't buy all this OTT JetJ to rot in my closet.

I might wear to the tea party though if AP turns out to be hosting it.

>> No.10077020

Since 3F is choosing the best coord on the same day as the tea party I kinda doubt it'll be hosted by AP. Could be wrong though.

>> No.10077075

I've modeled for a couple different brands. Portportionate measurements and face are most important. If you don't know how to do your own base makeup and well, you better learn. Also have a variety of well kept wigs and shoes. They'll want to see pictures or in person.

>> No.10077087

What if instead of having well kept wigs, my natural hair is immaculate?

>> No.10077150

I have seen immaculate natural hair accepted as a part a show look, so yes, you’d be good, but it has to be truly immaculate.

>> No.10077156

Is anyone planning to go alone without knowing anyone? I’m a lonelita and I know my bf wouldn’t like going.

>> No.10077159

I'm probably not going to wear AP either, I'm just not a big AP fan. Unless I can find one of the handful of older AP prints I actually like between now and then in good condition. I don't think that makes us terrible, it's not *only* an AP event and we should wear something we love and want to show off regardless of if it's AP.

>> No.10077173


Ah, so another reason to shoehorn my 3F bonnet. Sweet.

>> No.10077196

who wore replicas of what? i didn't notice but there were so many coords to look at

i did this last year, it was very awkward at first but i met a few nice people and just milled around taking pics and chatting

>> No.10077205

Why??? She is so strange

>> No.10077210

Not sure. But she's part of the second lolita comm in that area so maybe something to do with that? Does anyone know why there's two? It's weird.

>> No.10077211

I'm exactly in the same boat, anon. I'm a little nervous desu but I'm hoping to use the opportunity to make new friends.

>> No.10077254

I'm dragging my non-loltia friend because she cosplays and likes to dress up (and will fit in my wardrobe)

But if she gets bored, I'll likely be on my own if she decides she wants to leave

>> No.10077276

I am. I'm actually looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone and meeting new people.

>> No.10077320

Except you don’t get to choose which brand you model for. You get tossed in a general pot and they pick which models they want from there.

>> No.10077323

Who cares? AP USA is doing a tiny little booth and a few models of old releases. It’s not real AP.

>> No.10077531

There was a Holy Lantern at the tea party, that's the only one I noticed because it was teal before AP actually made that color.

>> No.10077694

I know, but on last year’s app you were able to give preference of which brand you wanted to model for.

>> No.10077909

oh yeah, i remember that one... she was proudly telling everyone it was a replica like we didn't already know. any others?

>> No.10078416

If it arrives before the event, I plan on wearing CTP on Saturday

>> No.10078451

Ties into the drama with Eyebrows-chan. After Eyebrows-chan was caught stealing, the ones who defended her went on to make the second comm. It's a bunch of itas and replica-chans

>> No.10078518

I'm dragging my friend along who likes the fashion, I'm making an 18 hour drive so I can't go it alone. Can't wait for him to awkwardly shuffle around behind me when I'm shopping. I'm going to send him some f+f links so he can wear some aristo and not stick out like a sore thumb tho

>> No.10078546

AP only has a small booth and a shop girl coming, they aren’t hosting.

>> No.10078741

AP isn't hosting, it's a Lolita event lmao, plus triple fortune and smaller indie brands are also present and selling shit/participating in the fashion show. AP fags are a riot.

>> No.10078749

I'm going both days! Friends are planning an airbnb group and carpool. Looking forward to it since this is my first j-fashion convention.

I know my OTT coord will be some goth shit with my Sweet Devil jsk in black, maybe do some crazy hair and accessories :)

As for the other day...it's a toss up between an ero coord with horror garden jsk or a cabaret coord with my rosy night's masquerade jsk. Decadence = sinful to me. I know they're going more for the sweet route with AP and chocolate themes but that's not what I'm about. Hope to see plenty of goth people there

>> No.10078792

don't wear ero, you fucking ita.

>> No.10078799

I'm torn, gulls.

Should I wear a coord with a less popular/more obscure print that I'm somewhat confident in?
Should I wear my most coveted piece that I havent fully coordinated yet and work really hard to make it into something I'm proud of?

One is lazier and cheaper but I feel like I'm really going to regret not wearing my highest valued main piece.

>> No.10078803

Going to also mention that coordinating the coveted piece makes me nervous cause I dont wanna fuck it up

>> No.10078805

I wouldn't wear a super popular/coveted dress because odds are others will be wearing it too. On the other hand, you have like 5 months to make a coordinate and it could be a fun challenge.

>> No.10078809

Wear the piece you love and want photos to treasure in!

>> No.10078833

That was another thing I was thinking but it's like a 10+ year old piece so I'm not sure how common it really is?

Thanks for the input anon. Kinda leaning in that direction

>> No.10078889

18 hour drive? Why not fly?

>> No.10079011

Sounds very tacky. I’ll look forward to your train wrecks as added sideshow entertainment.

Unless it’s something like Puppet Circus, no one will really care much so I say that you should dress to best please yourself.

>> No.10079012

It literally is puppet circus

>> No.10079015

nayrt, but if you drive you can pack more stuff...just sayin'

>> No.10079029

I thought so, anon.
Seems like it’s an easy profit for AP to just pay a cheap plane ticket and ship items to the location knowing how much they’ll make.

>> No.10079247

In sure Paradiso is the one that pays their ticket even.

>> No.10079330

I'm in the still comm, so I'm either going by car, or if worse comes to worse, bus
But I'm really hoping I can car pool with and split a room with other girls
I just don't know who, unfortunately

>> No.10079446


thanks salt-chan, i don't see you posting your coord ideas but have at it. im trying to have fun, not please a rando

>> No.10079447

Wear what makes you happy, anon. One of my coords is with a meme-level main piece... no regrets.

>> No.10079449

Is there going to be a swap meet? Anyone planning a nighttime gull party or meet?

>> No.10079450

less popular/more obscure doesn't equal lazier and cheaper, give your pieces a bit more credit. do whatever you enjoy the most

>> No.10079485

I've got two huge AP op's for each day
I'm really excited, I've already got one coordinate completely ready, and I'm working on the second one
For travel on Friday, I'm wear Lolita then too, but just a casual coord

>> No.10079539

I'm arriving Friday afternoon and would love a nighttime meet.

I hope they mention swap meet info soon. That's really going dictate what I bring. Even if it's just saying yea they're having one.

>> No.10079823

I’d probably wear it if it were mine. Unless you will go to an actual AP event or to an event where there is a brand tea within a year’s time. In that case, I’d save it for wearing to that instead.

>> No.10079859

Meme level main piece? now I'm curious....

Oh, I was talking about just cheaper to go with a coord that I already had lol, not that the piece itself is cheap. Thanks for the reassurance though!

Paradiso will be the only big Lolita event I go to this year so I'll probably be safe in that regard. Thanks for the input.

>> No.10080728

It's HL.

>> No.10080734

I might wear HL on day 1, because it seems like a roomy and comfy piece to be sitting at a table with for hours. I haven't worn it before, but I'm getting it in February. So excite for the teal green.

>> No.10080787

It costs like 3x more to fly, its Memorial day weekend
